2021 Championships at Giants Ridge – Summary

March 5, 6, 7, 2021 at Giants Ridge. 

We are doing our best to offer a fun filled weekend of racing.  A few things will be a bit different from past years due to the ongoing Covid Rules and Guidelines.

Everything will be outside this year except for check in.  We will not be having awards in the garage this year.  And, we will not have any evening awards presentations in the main chalet.  See below about Giants Ridge’s policies for indoor spaces.

CHECK IN:  Racers will be able to check in and boot up in the Sprung Building/ Sports Pavilion at the bottom of the hill right above the parking lot.  Only 15 people will be allowed inside at one time.  Once you are checked in and booted up, you will need to take all your belongings out and store them in your car.  We encourage everyone who is able to get dressed and booted up prior to coming over to the race venue and check in.

PARKING LOT:  Racers are welcome to tailgate in the parking lot as long as they are keeping the proper social distance of 6′.  Giants Ridge is tentatively going to have some food and drink available for purchase at the races.

AWARDS / RESULTS:  Tentatively, Results and awards will be given out after each race in a designated spot in the parking lot.  We will be doing this even after the Friday Open Race and King and Queen of the Hel.  No gatherings or awards are allowed inside and we will not be using the garage this year.  We will still have great prizes for the the winners of the Friday Team Open Race and the King & Queen of the Hel Race.  We will also have Plaques for each Team Division winner.  Door prize winners will also be drawn after each race.  We do not plan on handing out neck medals or pins this year.

DIVISION TEAM RACING:  Depending on the number of racers signing up this year, we may move to have all Division racing on Saturday.  All Division Team Racing will be held on Innsbruck.  What this means is we would be running two divisions at once.  Plaques would still be awarded to the winning team in each division.  Divisions will be determined on Monday, February 8 after Week 5 is complete

CAPTAIN SURVEY:  A survey was sent out to all captains on Monday, February 1 to find out if their team(s) are planning on participating.  This helps us to determine an approximate number of racers and helps us to determine the schedule for racing.  GO HERE TO FILL OUT SURVEY

REGISTRATION FOR ALL EVENTS:  Will open on Monday, February 8

INDOOR SPACES:  Giants Ridge’s Burnt Onion Restaurant and Main Chalet can be used by reservation only.  Follow this link for more information:  BURNT ONION RESTAURANT
